Exotic Arabic Bridal Smokey Eyes ~ Bridal makeup Collaboration

I collaborate on Youtube with two of my lovely friends Rumela and Mandy, and we decided to do different bridal makeup, depicting different cultures and traditions.

Rumela being from west Bengal picked up Bengali Bridal look , i feel no one except her could have done justice to the look , with her beautiful eyes and smile she beautifully executed the look.
I just loved her saree and the crown (not sure what is called), she looked like a real bride.

Here is her picture

Mandy born and raised in California picked up North Indian Bridal look, she has a very warm and friendly personality. just by looking at her picture one can guess the theme of her look, very Punjabi ^_^ , shez new on Youtube and has some really amazing videos.

Here is her look

My look was inspired Arabic bridal makeup , its very similar to traditional Indian and Pakistani wedding look, here is the pic(s)

  1. In last pic your eyes look like a kareena kapoor although i love brides in every look/culture, but i love Pakistani/Indian traditional brides with bindi ya, naath and matha patti you all look great

  2. wht a coincidence.. i was on your FB page :P even i love the complete traditional look with all that bindiya , nath and mang tika :)

  3. I loved all the looks but I think the Punjabi bride is a bit different from what Mandy depicted, but her look is still lovely! :) Liked yours the best :)

  4. @Deeptima: The thermocol crown that Rumela's wearing is called 'Topor' and is an integral part of traditional Bengali wedding!
    Nice concept!

    1. Thanks for letting me know Adaa :)

    2. Its called mukut the ones that the grooms wear are called topor. Although they are made of thermocol but the one I am wearing is made of art paper I made it :)

    3. @Adaa: topor is the one which is worn by the groom. Bride wears a Mukut.

    4. Thanks Rumela and Mrittika(nice name) :)

  5. Thank you Deeptima for such sweet compliments. You did a fabulous job I have always been a fan of your work and this is nothing less than a pro work..
